Tens of thousands of words have been written on this topic. I thought AOPA had kind of a "Fuel Replacement Central" website with the latest news, but I can't seem to find it quickly. They have other pages with both background and "what's next" sorts of info, though.
Here are a couple of places to get you started:
The whole issue in a "nutshell" (if several screens-full can be a nutshell): http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/regulatory/reglead.html
AOPA news on one possible replacement fuel: http://www.aopa.org/newsroom/newsitems/ ... 3-006.html
AOPA story on another contender for a possible replacement fuel: http://www.aopa.org/advocacy/articles/2 ... swift.html
The "Clean 100 Octane Coalition" advocacy group home page (lots of background and current status info available here if you look around): http://www.100octaneformyplane.com/
Google "avgas replacement" or "100LL replacement" or similar to find plenty more.
